    Landord Responsibility Not Meeting The Expectations That THEY Expect From Tenants

    Just before I moved in, the landlord told me that the cooker didn't work and that a part was needed. He sold it to me on the basis that it would be fixed within a couple of weeks.
    Over 3 months of leaving messages with his staff (he alsoworks at the letting agency that handles the property), he returned one call, telling me that the missing part was hard to get hold of.
    After 3 months, I moved into a bigger flat in the same building as was always the areement from day one.
    He complained about a couple of things that I have damanged and said he would take it from the deposit which was being carried over from the first flat. I have no problem with that but what about the cooking supplies that I was paying for over THREE months? What about the extra money I spent on food over thsoe three months?
    And guess what, after I told the tenant who was moving in that there the cooker didn't work (the landlord had failed to mention it), and the new tenant madea noise about it, a new cooker door was installed the very same day.
    This also needs to be taken into account when taking money from my deposit.
    How do I go about this?
    Also, in the new flat, I have a leak in the roof of the kitchen, which kept me up for several hours the other night and I have heard nothing about this after reporting it.
    If I could take action against him for that, I may just do. Would I be eligible and how far can I take it?

    There are good, decent and even great/smashing/super landlords and likewise, tenants.

    Unfortunately, there is no mechanism by which we can marry up sets of people in these categories, each and every time for a happy world.

    There is also the not insignificant problem of defining the above, as each person does have their own standards, opinions and expectations.

    I believe a register of some kind, using a feedback system like ebay's, would be a good idea if it could be created and maintained to a level that is both functional, fair and lawful, given the opposing forces of privacy and disclosure that our society is riddled with today.
